TO COME TO SCALA AND NEVER LEAVE
THE AMALFI COAST WAS BORN HERE
Scala was the first settlement to venture to the Amalfi Coast. Ravello and Amalfi were founded later.
Scala offers many opportunities to visit the typical Mediterranean vegetation of the Lattari mountains: from Punta d’Aglio to the chestnut groves of the Carosa fountain, from the Torre dello Ziro on the Monte Aureo to the amazing Valle della Ferriere. There is a wide choice of paths and rockfaces for climbers and trekkers, travellers who are aware of and passionate about nature.
SUSPENDED IN THE CLOUDS
Scala is considered the terrace of the Amalfi Coast. At 400 metres above sea level, it offers majestic views over sea and mountains.
Just off the beaten track of mass tourism, Scala is close to Ravello, Atrani and Amalfi. In only a few minutes a convenient shuttle bus connects to the famous towns of the Amalfi Coast.
Scala is an island of peace, time here is slower and induces contemplation. At night, the silence is regenerating, occasionally disturbed by the neighing of horses or miaowing cats. During the daytime a honking horn is simply a greeting.
In Scala if you sleep well, you eat even better: food here is really authentic. This is where local farmers have cultivated the land for centuries on the mountain terraces using age-old methods. There many varieties of fruit: the famous citrus and lemons, as well as local varieties of apples (renelle) and chestnuts (marrone di Scala).
The community of Scala, even though traditionally tied to the land, is also very dynamic and inclined to novelty. Every year shows and events of international importance are held here.
Because of its position in the hills of the Amalfi Coast, Scala’s culture and territory have undergone few changes. The lifestyle and the religiousness have their roots in ancient traditions which are still, to this day, alive and authentic.
